Starting academic year 2018-19 Gurukul has introduced Kindergarten program as the beginning level for all 5 year old students. After many years of observation and analysis we concluded that 5 year old students, who are also in KG in their public school program, are not ready for the rigour of Level 1 currlculum and need a year of settling in, easy and interactive curriculum with more activity and playschool format and NO WRITING in the curriculum.
This also aligns our grade level scheme with the Public School system.
6-under 8 year old new registrations will still go directly to Level 1 and 8+ into the accelerated 1-2 program.
KG Curriculum will include lots of vocabulary building, learning games and activities, spoken language and culture curriculum customized for the young ones. . The KG program is significantly different from
PreK program (if your child has gone through that already) and Level 1 program
that they will be going into next year.
The program was announced in New Parent Meeting in January 2018. There is NO TESTING or exceptions made to the age cut-off for the students to be moved directly into Level 1 at this point.
Yes. If you are a Hindi and Gujarati Language student there is testing available at various School Districts that you can take and get credits that suffice the Foreign Language requirements for High School and College.
a) STAMP TEST:
b) ALTA TEST: (Available for Hindi and Gujarati languages)
You have to contact the school district or your HIGH SCHOOL to take these tests. The dates are published on their sites. You have to be in High School to take the test.
Preparing for the Test:
1. If you are a Gurukul student, all the way to Level 6, the curriculum provides adequate material towards preparing the student to take this test.
2. If you are a YB student, enrol in the YB - Deep Se Deep Jale project to continue learning language and culture (in language) to keep yourself in touch with the language. This will also prepare you for the test you may take in March and later test dates.
Gurukul is willing to provide guidance and material to their alumni students to also prepare for this test at home.
